Most of the emails sent around the world these days are spam, i.e. unasked-for messages with various offers or with hyperlinks to malware. Not only are such email messages annoying, but they also present a risk to your personal computer, not to mention that you may be ripped off. Because of this, a lot of email service providers resort to email filters, which are apps that ‘scan’ all inbound email messages and filter out the undesired ones based on their content – what words or phrases an email consists of and how many times they are referred to, what web site a certain link points to, what outbound SMTP server the message comes from, and so on. Certain companies also use the databases of spam-tracing organizations devoted to providing the most up-to-date info about unasked-for email messages, to ensure that their customers won’t get any email in their inbox that shouldn’t be there.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between five different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom filters and either get rid of unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as where you can check them once again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the emails that you need will not disappear.
